About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for New York by BOLLMANN, HERMANN.

Description:

Colored lithograph map printed on paper, 27.5 x 21.5 inches. A fine copy on heavy paper, unmounted, unfolded. The great map of mid-century Manhattan based on thousands of aerial photographs (reproduced with a forgivable lack of fidelity), showing axonometric representations of every building in mid-town Manhattan from the Central Park to approximately 20th St. The map was commissioned for exhibition at the 1964 World's Fair, and Bollmann reproduced it in a smaller scale for his multilingual New York guidebook. That is the most common version of the map; this lithographed edition is on heavy stock for mounting as a poster. Though slightly smaller than the folding map it is cleaner and not cluttered with names and logos of stores, restaurants, and tourist attractions like the larger map; and, of course, has no folds. (Manhattan in Maps p. 152; The Greatest Grid 177). Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description U.S.A. Brossura. Condition: buono. Bollmann, Hermann: mappa a volo d'uccello di (illustrator). prima edizione. "About the technique and the artist. This picture map, or bird's-eye-view, of New York is the first such map to be drawn of the city since 1866. Althougt little reference information is available, it is believed the technique was used in Europe as early as the 15th Century; and it is further believed that this type of cartography was fully developed as an art form, called Vogelschaukarten, by German artists of the middle and late 19th Century. / Obviously the problems faced by these earlier artist cannot be compared with the sifficulties encountered in creating this map of New York City. the artist, logically enough, is Hermann Bollmann of Braunschweig, Germany. Before World War II he was a well known woodcarver and an engraver. Since 1948 he has drawn thirty-nine similar maps of European cities. / For this map of New York his staff has designed and built special cameras. They have taken 67,000 individual photographs of the City, 17,000 of these from the air. To solve the problem of skyscrapers and concentration of building, Bolmann has used several unique devices, which remain his secret. Further he has achieved a perspective which gives full effect to the soaring beauty of the City. The map is drawn with eact accuaracy to the smallest detail. And in this age of automation, Bollmann's cameras are his only compromise with the present. All the actual drawing is done by hand" (dal secondo piatto della copertina). I ed.
